|Name:||Soprani Inc. “Ravenna” Art Deco-Inspired Accordion|
First of all, I am absolutely gorgeous (if you like that Art Deco, sleek, symmetrical, streamlined, pleasing to the eye sort of thing). I am also humble. I am definitely vintage. I have mother of pearl keys and bindings. I sound great! My bellows is near perfect as are my grills. My straps are in excellent condition. I have my own case and instructional books (five of them). Listen to me here: View on YouTube.
|Breed:||48 Bass Piano Accordion|
|Age:||Around 85 Years old.|

I was born in Castelifardo, Italy in the early 1940s. I likely came into the USA through Boston or New York just after WWII. It is also likely ( based upon some research) that I spent some time in a Chicago music store in the 1950s. I got to Terra Alta, WV in early 2022 after being rescued from Portland, OR.
All of the musical creatures that you will see have been rescued from attics, basements, closets, flea markets, estate sales and/or thrift stores. They have been rescued in various stages of repair and playability. Some required extensive work and some just a little TLC. Rest assured that when you adopt one of these fine musical creatures, they will be ready to play.
